Mince Pies

So now Christmas is almost upon us and of course I now need to make some mince pies to use up the immense supply of mincemeat I made a little while back in preparation.

I got this book back at Cake International when it was on offer as a 2 for £10 deal (I bought James Martin’s Dessert book with it). I’ve been dying to use it for a while to make some bread but needs must when I was making the pies and needed a recipe for sweetcrust pastry as I still haven’t found my ‘go-to’ recipe just yet.

Homemade Mincemeat

So Christmas is just around the corner as we all know (only 49 sleeps to go!) and I thought I’d make my own mincemeat to get into the festive spirit!
